Selecting Node.js for web application Development

Selecting a mobile application development framework that suits your business requirements is a challenging task. It is essential for developers to evaluate multiple options and select one that fulfills project requirements as comprehensively as possible. A typical evaluation exercise involves being able to answer the following questions - 


  • Does the framework have a sizeable support community?

  • Is rapid application development possible?

  • Can the framework provide features essential for the project?

A technology framework that our mobile application development team at Oodles Technologies uses often is Node.js. Node.js is an open source JavaScript framework that provides a server-side development environment to develop real-time web and mobile applications.
